Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that I would be writing about the wonders on my crockpot. I've had the damn thing for 20 years, have usued it once in a great while, and now today, I think this thing is the best invention since the KitchenAid mixer.
Tonight Madison MUST attend Maundy Thursday mass at church. It's part of her confirmation program and since she must be there, the whole damn family is going. In anticipation of this, I got out the crockpot and threw in some frozen round steak with onion soup mix and cream of celery soup. OMG, the smell of it cooking right now is delicious. All I have to do yet is throw some rice into the rice cooker and steam some green beans and Voila, dinner.
Who would have thought that this obscure kitchen appliance that has merely occupied space above my refrigerator actually serves such a useful purpose? I just might have to use this thing more often! It should have been called the "Just throw it all in and walk away" cooker. Whoever invented this thing is a friggin genius. Or it could be that I am just a slow learner and haven't seen the beauty of this thing before as it laid dormant in the cabinet under a layer of dust?
